The idea of micro-services has gained a lot of traction recently, with companies like Netflix basing their entire infrastructure around them. The JVM is also seeing a resurgence in popularity, and open-source projects, such as DropWizard, are being developed to bring micro-services to Java.
What may surprise you is just how easy it is to create a micro-service using Spring.
This presentation will teach you how to develop a simple REST service using Spring Boot. We will demonstrate how an 8Mb executable jar is all you really need to serve production code; why this style of application makes sense for Cloud deployment; and how, these days, you don’t need reams of XML to get started with Spring.
We will live-code an example service and briefly discuss how the technology was used within Pivotal to develop the new ‘spring.io’ website.
Phil Webb is a Spring Framework developer and co-creator of the Spring Boot project. Prior to joining Pivotal and relocating to California, Phil worked for a number of UK technology companies.
